REAP, Inc.

The Residential Energy Assistance Partnership (REAP) is a partnership between CPS Energy, the City of San Antonio and Bexar County, which provides eligible families in financial distress with utility assistance twice a year.

Every dollar donated goes directly to those who are in need. REAP funds are applied directly to the recipient's utility bill, making it convenient with no check to pick up or money to manage. Since 2002, we have contributed mroe than $20 million to REAP to help customers facing difficult times. Donate to REAP, Inc.
